boot.localnet -> cleanup. yes, but what?

I'm streamlining my boot process. There is a script at /etc/init.d/boot.localnet which sets up hostname, yp and does some "cleanup" of files. It needs "ldconfig".

My box is a standalone workstation with 56k-modem on /dev/ttyS0 for an internet connection. During boot, setting up hostname is skipped.

So now: Do I need boot.localnet under these circumstances at all? Do I need these bindings? Or would the system getting cluttered without cleanup? Is ldconfig necessary for a smoothly running system?

Lots of questions, I know, but perhaps someone is kind enough to point me to a good link, since the manpages take too much knowledge on my part for granted .
